Chelsea asked her why she had a conflict on the day and almost didn’t make it to the wedding, she responded by saying, “I was asked by President Biden and his team to go DJ for like, that summit dinner with all the leaders of the world but it was the same night as Britney’s wedding but I was like, ‘No, I’m not gonna miss that.’ Then they said we’ll send a helicopter and you can fly back and forth. I was like, ‘No, I’m not gonna be the one landing in and out of Britney’s wedding in a helicopter, so I had to cancel on the president.”

Chelsea then pulled up an image from Britney’s big day which included Madonna, Donatella Versace, Paris, Selena Gomez and the bride, to ask her how the wedding was. “Literally like, the most iconic night of my life,” the star said.

When asked about another image that surfaced of her being emotional at the wedding she responded, “I was emotional and just seeing her walk down the aisle looking like this angel who’s had such a horrible time this past 13 years to finally have freedom and be able to do what she wants and have that fairytale ending was just beautiful.”

She also added that the night wasn’t about getting intoxicated but dancing and singing. “Madonna was signing, Selena and I were singing, everyone was singing,” she said.

Paris also shared that she’s been friends with Britney for over two decades.  “We just met from like back in the day and I remember the first picture I saw of us was at my grandfather’s estate and she came over, we were hanging out and we’ve been close ever since,” she added.
